36th Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Ceremony

The 36th Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation ceremony was Thursday, April 24, 2014, at Pechanga Resort and Casino.

Each year co-workers, families, friends and members of the communities served by local law enforcement join together to honor law enforcement officers for performing duties deemed worthy of special recognition.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening where we were able to recognize these officers and share their amazing stories of a job well done.
